The electricity power is the same as UK 230V and 50 HZ even with same plug shape.
The tripping of the curcuit braker is due to a short in a power line inside the machine.
The most posible part is the heating element and second athe solenoid valve. Last with less posibility is the vibarating pump.
The only way to identify is to open the top of the machine and by a use of leectrical tester you can mesure the above parts live lines if they have an earth contact and replace that part.
Give emphasi to the boiler element.
Good luck

How to stop it from tripping the breaker

It's probably pulling more amps then the circuit breaker can handle. Try plugging it into a different plug or unplug something that's on the same circuit that you move the machine on. if that doesn't work there's a short to ground somewhere in the machine.

Hi, where do I find FrancisFrancis X5 parts? I need to replace the small circuit board.

I have an X5 that is functioning well (circuit wise), but has leaking gaskets and the finish has chipped off quite a bit. Perhaps I could sell you my circuit board?

When machine is turned on the electrical parts blow a fuse. it is not a fuse or voltage problem but water seems to be falling onto electrical parts

if water gets into the electrical parts it will cause it to short out to ground, tripping your breaker/fuse. seal her up and see what happens.
